whats it like to live in Phoenix AZ?

I am moving from Charlotte NC, but I am originally from California (bay area). I miss the west coast and I am happier to be going back across the great divide. But I am looking for a bit of advice and locals tips on living in Phoenix. I am looking at living in the southern area as this is where my boyfriends new job is. What areas are good to live? I am looking for a free standing home with privacy, not commercial housing or apartments. Also what are some great ethnic restaurants (mexican, indian, chinese, etc) and just general entertainment and local culture? We are into outdoor adventures (hiking and camping) roadtripping, etc also I paint and I love art Any advice would be great. Thanks!!

The southern part of phoenix proper is pretty dumpy or alternatively rather underdeveloped. You can find nice housing in that area, but there isnt a lot of stores in those areas... More
